Bullshit.

Unless you have a Cosi Escort, which would run at least $300,000, you couldn't go that fast unless you had some serious mods. Stock they just don't have the aerodynamics or the right power to weight ratio to pull it off.

In fact, a mid 90s Mustang couldn't even break 140s stock. They had to cover the front openings with cardboard and take off the windshield wipers to get 141.

Anyhow, the fastest I've knowingly driven was 120 in my '94 Eagle Vision TSi it had a little more to go but a blown intake manifold gasket and a limiter kept it from going any faster. In my first GTC I wrapped the speedometer back around to 30MPH. The stock one goes to 125MPH so I don't know how fast I was going, I would guess close to 140MPH.

Re: max speed in ur car?

My 1998 BMW 328is I've done 132, with four people + luggage. I could do 150+ by myself though apparently.

Re: max speed in ur car?

I've done ~120 in my 2003 Acura RSX-S. I think the limiter's at around 130 or so...
